Bob was caught up in the spirit where he and the Lord stood by too observe a baseball game.
The Lord's team was playing Satan's
The Lord's team was at bat, the score was tied 0 to 0, and it was the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 outs.They continued to watch as a batter stepped up to the plate whose name was Love.
Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because Love never fails.
The next batter was named Faith, who also got a single because Faith works with Love.
The next batter up was named Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and threw the first pitch; Godly Wisdom does not swing at Satan's pitches. Ball one. Three more pitches and Godly Wisdom walked, because Godly Wisdom never swings at Satan's throws.
The bases were loaded......
The Lord turned to Bob and told him He was now going to bring in His star player. Up to the plate stepped Grace. Bob said he sure did not look like much!
Satan's whole team relaxed when
they saw Grace.
Thinking he had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first pitch.
To the shock of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had ever seen.
But Satan was not worried; his center fielder, the Prince of the Air, let very few get by.
He went up for the ball, but it went right through his glove, hit him on the head and sent him crashing to the ground, then it continued over the fence for a home run!
The Lord's team won! The Lord then asked Bob if he knew why Love, Faith, and Godly Wisdom could get on base but could not win the game. Bob did not know why.
The Lord explained, "If your love, faith and wisdom had won the game you would think you had done it by yourself.
Love, faith and wisdom will get you on base, but only My grace can get you home.
My grace is the one thing Satan
